Camden Children’s Safeguarding and Social Work became a Partner in Practice in April 2018. The Partners in Practice programme is a Department for Education initiative that aims to be a genuine partnership between local and central government by bringing together the best practitioners and leaders in children’s social care to improve the system. 


There are three strands of the Partners in Practice Programme:

  • Driving sector-led improvement by offering support to authorities in need of support to improve; 
  • Continuing to demonstrate excellent practice and driving innovation; and
  • Supporting wider programmes to raise the standard of frontline practice, including piloting new initiatives, and supporting the Department for Education with policy development. 

As part of our Partners in Practice programme, Camden Children’s Safeguarding and Social Work has been awarded funding to develop an integrated adolescent centred approach for young people aged 14 to 18 who are affected by multiple risks.
